Form factor they are similar in size however the nook tablet has the outer case that helps protect the screen if dropped. That corner hook helps when grabbing and maintaining orientation.
Internal hardware is the same for screen, processor,gpu, the extra512 Meg RAM and the8 gig storage& micro sd card ability means that the nook tablet is better.
If Barnes& noble were smart they would, "free" the tablet up and allow the android market.
Right nowi entered this from my nook tablet using slide-it keyboard. Rooted, it does most
Of whati want fora tablet, andi have streaming dvd video from my computer via mx video player and es file explorer.
